Hydrofracturing

Maximising Well Yield 2

Client: Dairy Processing Factory
Location: Banbridge, Co. Down

Application: Hydrofracturing
Geology: Greywacke Sandstone

Job Description:

This client required as much groundwater as possible for a cooling process. We drilled a well to 182m and the well had a safe yield of approximately 5m³ per hour. However this was not sufficient for the client’s requirements, we carried out a Hydrofracturing Programme at several levels in the borehole and increased to 8.2m³ per hour. This represents a 64% increase in yield.

Equipment Used:

Hydrofracturing unit
